Unexpected blessing: The most challenging part of my life

Motherhood  It’s a choice you make every day, to put someone else’s happiness and well being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what is the right thing is…and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.” – Donna Ball

Motherhood is a fulfilling duty and the most important of all professions.

Being a mother is a lifelong responsibility.  This is the part of a woman’s life that changes a lot, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Here you will learn to love and take care of the life you conceive without thinking of anything in return.

At the age of twenty-eight, I’m engaged to be married and I just found out that I was pregnant with my first child. Either of those life events is huge on its own, so navigating both at the same time can be tricky but definitely doable. Being pregnant may mean your financial circumstances and priorities may have changed, but it also might mean they haven’t. There’s no hard and fast guide to what to do, its all about working out what’s right for you, and your family

“The children we bring into the world are a small replica of ourselves and our husband; The pride and joy of grandfathers and grandmothers. We dream of being mothers, and for most of us that dreams are realized naturally. For this is the miracle of life”. – Azelene Williams

June 23, 2018, When we got married.

Marriage is full of many ups and downs, adventures, and incredible memories with the person you love. Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful box full of all the things they have longed for; companionship, intimacy, and friendship. A couple must learn the art and form of the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising keeping the box full. 

Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.

When I turn forty weeks pregnant this is the time that my Ob-gyne advises me to undergo a pelvimetry x-ray because my baby is still not in the right position.

There are a lot of questions running in my mind.

Who can be with me at birth? 

What if I would undergo a Cesarean Section?

 Does that hurt? 

Will I see my baby immediately after giving birth? 

When can I nurse my baby?

I’m a C-Section mom, That does not make me any less of a mom. It just means I went through surgery to save mine and my baby’s life. The birthing plan does not define who we are as a mother. The way we raise and our children do. And the most memorable time of my life, Exactly 9:06 in the morning, December 5, 2018, when I gave birth to my son. 

Babies are the most priceless gift from God, and as a parent, I am proud and lucky to have one.

I loved you from the very start. 

You stole my breath, embraced my heart. 

Our life together has just begun. 

You’re part of me, my little one.
